    1. 1
      Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. Reserve ¼ cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)
    2. 2
      Prepare fresh pomegranate juice.(See note)
    3. 3
      In a 6-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, combine pomegranate juice, lemon juice and pectin. Over high heat, bring mixture to a boil.
    4. 4
      Stir in sugar all at once, then stir constantly. Heat mixture again until it comes to a full rolling boil; boil 1 minute over medium-high heat.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and skim foam from jelly with a spoon. Discard foam.
    6. 6
      Immediately ladle the jelly into clean jelly jars with lids or refrigerator containers with tight-fitting lids. Sprinkle reserved arils over the top of each container of jelly. Cover tightly. Let stand for 45 minutes to cool, then refrigerate for 1¼ hours. If not using immediately, refrigerate for up to 4 to 6 weeks or freeze for up to 1 year.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      For 2 cups of juice, cut 4—6 large pomegranates in half and juice them with a citrus reamer or juicer. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or sieve. Set the juice aside.

      Perfect!! Just like my great grandmother made with a lot less fuss. I used Pom Wonderful instead of fresh and it was perfect. Made just like recipe said: 2 cups juice, 4 cups sugar, 2T lemon juice and 1 pkt LIQUID pectin. I think for failproof success, use the liquid pectin as the recipe states. Couldn't be any easier or any better! Thanks.

      I have made this several times using the juice and my granddaughter loves it. Before this she would only eat grape jelly. Thank you..Bonnie

      oooh this was wonderful, a little time-consuming, but tastes so good and is so good for you. Here in Cairo the pomegranates are rich dark red, and are very cheap to buy. People here serve them in a glass dish with rosewater, and optional sugar if the fruit is bitter. Recent press reports comment on the health benefits from this amazing fruit which is also much-loved by children.
